A True Victorian Treasure

Each Cameo is hand carved & unique.  The entire Sterling Silver bracelet was dipped in Gold and then burnished off the corners of each panel to show the silver from underneath.  Gilt is not about making gold jewelry less expensive, a common perception about plating.  Gold wash on silver creates an unmistakable color and when burnished off, opens the opportunity for a unique patina.  Note the exposed silver’s patina being a gunmetal shade.
